Lil Wayne has revealed plans to retire from the music industry within the next couple of years.

The rapper, who is currently 28, said he will call time on his career when he reaches his 30s.

"I'm bowing out still on top, I'll make you all want me when I retire," the 28-year-old told XXL magazine. "I honestly think [my career] is unfair to my kids. Honestly this is the real truth. So about 30, 31, 32, I got to get ready [to retire]."


The rapper completed a jail sentence for a gun crime back in November 2010. He has been working on his forthcoming ninth studio album 'The Carter IV' ever since. It is due for release in the UK on August 29.

Tracks slated to appear on his new record include '6 Foot 7 Foot', 'John', 'How To Love' and 'Nightmares Of The Bottom'.
